Interestingly, iPhone cases by Speck claims to be neither. They prefer to be simply iPhone cases and they’re doing a heck of a great job.


This week, we’ll be looking at the Speck CandyShell Flip case for iPhone 4 (AT&T model) and if you’re lucky, you might be able to win one of the 5 that we’ll be giving out. Read on for more details.

The Speck CandyShell Flip iPhone 4 case was designed to tackle one of the most irritating pet peeves that ever arose in the iPhone world; that’s the fact that the dock was made to hold just the iPhone. If you use a third party case, it won’t fit into the dock. So the pundits at Speck designed a case which could flip open to allow you to dock your iPhone while the case was still attached.

Consider this a “flip” version of the CandyShell because other than the flippy bottom end of the case, everything else is exactly the same as the regular CandyShell case. It’s made out of polycarbonate and light as a feather, is lined with silicon on the interior surface and allows access to all of the buttons and switches.

The iPhone fits into the case snugly and even easier than the regular CandyShell. The additional flippy portion helps the iPhone slip in without any drama. Clip the flippy end into place and there you have it.
